An in-depth Lean Practitioner course

Creating efficiency at work requires more than just a single effort. Daily working habits have to be changed, team initiatives ask for new expertise, and insights have to be shared. During the Lean Practitioner training, students learn how to become the driving force for such efforts. Students acquire a wide variety of tools and insights, and learn to see and solve the underlying root-causes of any problem. The strength of a Lean Practitioner is bringing teams together. They challenge unproductive habits, involve key stakeholders, and overcome reactive problem solving. Always with one goal in mind: for everyone to meet customer demands more easily.

What is the benefit for my organization?

Quick and thorough improvements is what makes Lean so popular, especially in organizations with operational excellence goals. Through Value Stream Maps, Kaizen events and A3 projects, results stay within reach, which makes them attractive and much easier to invest time in. Organizational issues that have been a burden since day 1 can be resolved within a single month or even week. Not from behind a single desk, but through group efforts, right where the work is carried out. Besides thorough improvements, Lean activities are also quite fun, as they challenge others to think about work – either their own or in general – and improve on the old standards.

Your way of studying


Attend a classroom training session and enjoy interaction with fellow students. Share ideas, learn from group exercises and discuss project ideas with your trainer, even from the first day. Our classrooms are all about interactivity and our practical exercises will help you develop your own Lean insights.



Interactivity and engagement are key for all of our trainings. Together with your fellow students, you will explore various tools and methods such as Push & Pull, Poka Yoke, Kaizen events, 5S and much more. The same quality as our classroom training sessions but from the comfort of your home or office.



About our Lean Practitioner training

The Lean Practitioner training has been designed for professionals looking to personally employ Lean tools and methods. The Lean Practitioner training covers everything needed to begin from the basics. From the simple understanding of ‘waste’, to more complex concepts such as changing daily working habits and the way people think about solving issues at work.

During the training, students perform live exercises and practice with various tools to become familiar with their application. Lean Practitioners possess the knowledge needed to optimize and refine existing processes within an organization, as well as create new working habits. In short, they establish themselves as change agents.

Lean Practitioner training

It is possible to use Lean tools in any industry, as any repeating process can be optimized using the tools and methods provided by the methodology. Bring process improvement to your working environment with our ISO-level courses, regardless of your field.

Financial details

Training costs


The path to becoming certified as a Lean Practitioner according to the ISO 18404 standards requires you to complete both a theory training and an in-field Lean Six Sigma project. The theory training takes place over the course of multiple days and is supported by a full digital suite of preparation materials. For the project you will receive coaching and project review from an experienced Lean Six Sigma expert.

If circumstances do not allow for a project during the same timeframe as the theory training, it is possible to start with theory only and to move on to your project at a later point in time.

Frequently asked questions

Can I register and join a training without any prior experience or knowledge of Lean?

Every training we provide assumes our students start the training without any understanding of the Lean Six Sigma methodology. It starts with the fundamentals and explains every topic that is mentioned without assuming prior experience. During the training, you will carry out simulations and exercises to help you develop your knowledge. If you choose to carry out a project as part of your training, you will be coached and assisted by one of the (Master) Black Belts of The Lean Six Sigma Company to help you get started.

Should I go for a Lean Practitioner or Lean Leader training?

Lean Practitioners have a different role than Lean Leaders. They carry out Lean Initiatives on a constant basis and involve stakeholders in their efforts. Lean Leaders on the other hand possess a wider range of knowledge of Lean, and train employees so they can start using the Lean methodology themselves.

Is a Lean training relevant to my career phase?

Lean is a methodology that one can start using during any career phase and this training is the ideal starting point. Even as a beginner, your work can add tremendous value. Lean can serve as an addition to your current work, replacing a part of your existing responsibilities. Or it can become a new full-time career, depending on the training you choose.
